University Recreation

Vision:
Preparing the University community for a positive, healthy, active life through recreational programs and services.

Mission Statement:
To create healthy environments that engage students and the university community in learning and personal development.

The Student Recreation Center is the centerpiece for University Recreation. University Recreation is a department within Student Affairs. All departments within Student Affairs, including University Recreation, are committed to creating environments that give support to Ernest Boyer's Principles of Community (1990)*:

Educationally Purposeful – a place where faculty and students share academic goals and strengthen teaching and learning on campus.

Open – a place where free speech is protected and civility powerfully affirmed.

Just – a place where the sacredness of each person is honored and where diversity is aggressively pursued.

Disciplined – a place where individuals accept their obligations to the group and where well defined governance procedure guide behavior for the common good.

Caring – a place where the well being of each member is sensitively supported and where service to others is encouraged.

Celebrative – a place where the heritage of the institution is remembered and where rituals affirming tradition and change are shared.
